The Textbook is THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK ON HARMONICS AND VIBRATION EVER WRITTEN! This course is the equivalent to a Ph.D. in technical and historical harmonics and musicology, and there is no work ever created or conceived which touches the depth of knowledge and scientific application of this masterpiece! It surveys the entire history of harmonics through all ancient societies and authors, developing a Science of Harmonics & Vibration, stemming from Pythagorean origins, elaborating how the entire universe is constructed upon Harmonic Principles.
